English Equivalents: Time After Time

English Equivalents is a powerful workshop that will guide participants in finding ways to express idiomatic translations from American Sign Language (ASL) to English, and from English to ASL. Many signs are complex and not easy to translate. This video workshop will give you the skill to express idiomatic and technical ideas effectively. English Equivalents in ASL will help you confidently continue the flow of information exchange between the languages. Trix demonstrates this process with a myriad of practical examples and useful principles. The focus of this workshop is on Time Indicators.

ASL Extreme Makeovers: The Art of Personification

Learn how to “change yourself” into someone or something else. In literature, the technique of “personification” gives an inanimate object, a plant, or an animal characteristics that make it seem “human”. The object shows emotions and takes on human-like behaviors. You can use this technique in American Sign Language to “become” a book, a flower, or even a butterfly! Trix will demonstrate how to personify characters and shift roles within your story. You’ll learn how to “become” a baseball, basketball, beach ball, bowling ball, football, marble, ping pong ball, racquetball, soccer ball, water polo ball, and more!

1.5 clock hours or .15 CEU available
